You may not know his name but you’d certainly know his work. Rick Baker has been a part of such movies as Gremlins, The Grinch, Cat in the Hat and so much more. Now, he’s taking his talents to sculpting one of the most recognizable characters of all time, The Joker. Take a look below to see the master at work!


Best known for his work on Hollywood blockbusters such as Star Wars, Gremlins, Thriller, King Kong and Planet of the Apes, special effects artist Rick Baker has brought his monster-making talent to one of DC’s most iconic Super-Villains, The Joker. Ahead of the Halloween release, DC Collectibles has released a sculpting time-lapse video of Baker bringing to life his stunningly creepy version of the Joker.

Designed, sculpted and painted by Rick Baker, the life-size bust is available for pre-order now and will go on sale October 31. The bust measures 1:1 scale/approx.. 22’’ tall and will be available in two versions:

  • Ultimate Edition: Limited to only 50 pieces (numbered 1-50). Produced from Baker’s original molds, offering fans a version that is just one step removed from the Academy Award winner’s original creation.

  • Standard Edition: Limited to only 150 pieces (numbered 1-150). Features The Joker sporting an orange shirt and purple vest. MSRP: $1000.00
